"Friggin' Bats" - Batman's Lament

I imagine Batman singing this solemnly to himself in the batcave with a sweeping orchestral accompaniment...

An illustrated poem with a cave background, featuring a digging rat, two cats wearing spats and playing instruments, a pig wearing four hats sitting at a computer, two gnats drinking beer, an aristocrat wearing a wig, and three mischievous looking bats.

I’d be okay

with diggin’ rats,

Or giggin’ cats,

Who jig in spats.


I wouldn’t mind

a pig in hats,

Who’s riggin’ stats

for swiggin’ gnats.


I wish I'd picked headquarters that

Were apt for wigged aristocrats,

Alas, I chose this habitat

That's always full of friggin’ bats!
